et Airways ties up with Akamai for online services

New Delhi, May 25: Jet Airways has forged a partnership with Akamai Technologies Inc for accelerating content and business processes online.

The country's largest private airline will access Akamai's platform and leverage its services and expertise in online travel to ensure consistent services. This will be done by effectively delivering the airlines' content from Akamai's 21,000 servers located across 70 countries.

Jet's website attracts over five million page views and 1.5 million visitors per month, said airline's vice-president for marketing Gaurang Shetty. ''Our website's performance is critical to our existing and future business activity as we continue to grow with our international flights,'' he said.

Akamai enables e-business initiatives and optimises the web presence for a number of other commercial airlines and travel companies.
